Something sticky ๐Ÿ‘€

IN CASE YOU DIDN'T GET YOUR FILL OF SUGARY TREATS LAST WEEK, IT'S NATIONAL STICKY BUN DAY

Yeah, we're talking gooey yeasty sticky pastries, perhaps loaded with nuts and maple syrup for good measure. What's not to love?

Our Delve Deck Joy Edition asks what dessert you'll always order if it's on the menu, and some sort of cinnamon roll or sticky bun is at the top of my list. It's a dopamine rush in edible form.

1. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๏ธ Can men and women just be friends?

Tess and Gabe from Boredwalk's content team might not think so, but they have some very different reasons why!

For more LOLs from our team be sure to follow us on our OG social accounts such as Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and/or Facebook.

2. ๐Ÿค– Watch out for Alexa, she has an agenda

Humorist Emily Morrow imagines the robot uprising we're all dreading/expecting.

3. ๐Ÿ’€ Are you attempting to blend in with the human population?

Horror/humor creator Ashur Gharavi has some ideas for you. I have to admit, I was transfixed by Ashur's content and binged all of his videos. If you like super bizarre funny spooky content (and if you're a Boredwalk fan, I bet you do) you'll probably enjoy a lot of his content.

4. ๐Ÿ˜† If planet Earth were on a dating app

Humor creator Hila imagines what Earth's dating profile would say to try to get some right swipes.

5. ๐Ÿง™ Why Terry the gnome finds himself in the corner

Terry isn't getting his gnome bacon due to his dark magic antics. Will he learn his lesson? Doubtful.

We'll be back here in your inbox on Friday with more nonsense holidays to dissect, more notable birthdays (and maybe even some notable deathdays!) to celebrate, and more witty content in general. Until then...

Peace, love, and pastries,
